Echoes: Lucifer and the Dark Goddess by Nikki Broadwell – Review by Michelle Austin

Echoes--(Lucifer and the dark goddess book 1)Echoes– by Nikki Broadwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Echoes–(Lucifer and the dark goddess book 1) by Nikki Broadwell was a good 5 star read.
I was pulled right into this different world by the author and couldn’t put it down.

At 15 Feirin finds herself alone with a necklace and a crescent moon tattoo on her forehead, she befriends a group of people who help her and teach her things. We jump ahead a few years, she now has a job and a relationship with bar owner Peyton and living in a future world out of control. She can’t remember who she is but has spurts of memories here and there. She decides to go to the police department to inquire about the night she was brought in with amnesia, not realizing it was putting a bullseye on her back. She ends up exiled with a group of people outside the wall.

Will she get her memory back? Can she lead the group to safety? Who is the mysterious man helping her?

There is so much more to this story that I don’t want to give away. I really got the Mad Max vibe and funny enough the movie is even mentioned in conversation between characters. There are so many great characters that added a great element to the story. Feirin is great, she is a very strong and determined character that can hold her own against anyone that comes at her. You will be on the edge of your seat waiting to see what is coming next. We get suspense, drama, action, paranormal and so much more. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. 1-click and get started today.

I Once Was Lost, But Now I’m Found: Daisy and the Olympic Animal Sanctuary Rescue
by Laura Koerber was a great 5 star read.

I had several emotional moments reading this book. I’m a HUGE dog lover and to read what these poor dogs went through at the hands of a hoarder just about killed me emotionally. Twilight put Forks on the map for most but this story has left a whole different feeling for me.

How could the town people not see what this man was doing? How could they protect him?

Daisy’s journey wasn’t easy and my heart really went out to her and the other fur babies that suffered, to see her finally get her HEA was great. I also liked how the author gave us an update on where some of the other rescues went. I will warn you that pictures and some things mentioned may be hard for some to see/read, I was in tears. This also opens your eyes to making sure you know just where your donations go and what rescue groups you support. Proceeds from this book are going to the OAS rescues which is great.

The Kissing Bough (Forbidden Loves) by Madelynne Ellis – Review by Michelle Austin

The Kissing Bough (Forbidden Loves, #1)The Kissing Bough by Madelynne Ellis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Kissing Bough (Forbidden Loves #1) by Madelynne Ellis was a good 4 star read.

Viola was caught in a compromising position that has put her in a predicament in regards to finding a husband. She still had hope that someone would come and kiss her under the kissing bough, so she continued to go each Christmas Eve.

Percy and Lord William heard about Viola and were hoping she was the one for them. They have a unique relationship and with the rumors about Viola she would be perfect for them. Will they be able to convince her to be with them? Will she finally get the husband she desires?

Overall this was a good quick read. We get some steaminess and all the characters were great. Although, I would have liked to see the story be a little longer and include the compromising incident so that we could better understand why it happened.

Unbroken Vow by Bree M. Lewandowski was a thrilling 5 star read.
You get pulled in right from the beginning, there is a dangerous twist that leaves Glaive making a promise to Markus on his deathbed.

Jordan's Justice: A New Adult Sport Romance (Tessa and Jordan Book 2)Jordan’s Justice: A New Adult Sport Romance by T. Christensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jordan’s Justice: A New Adult Sport Romance (Tessa and Jordan Book 2) by T. Christensen was a great 5 star read. I was so excited to get the next book in the series, I made the mistake of starting the book when I went to bed, I was up until 4am because I couldn’t put it down.

Tessa has moved on with her life and is doing the best she can. When she comes face-to-face with Jordan at an event she is shocked and after their encounter she runs home. When he makes an unexpected appearance at her door she agrees to meet him and talk. There is another twist when she is at work and sees him walking in with her boss, that’s when things hit the fan and he learns the truth.

Needless to say there is so much going on that my head was spinning. My heart broke for Tessa with all that she was put through and how she was treated. I have to say I really really did not like Jordan for most of the book and don’t get me started on his mother. There are so many ugly cry moments in this book so keep the Kleenex handy. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. If you’re looking for an emotional read that pulls you right in this is the book and series for you. I look forward to reading more from this author. 1-click and get started today.
